No longer have to deal with pins and accidentally pricking your child.  These great Snappi Fasteners keep the nappies on safely.  Highly recommend for use when the babies are younger and/or you are using the liquid poo fold.


  • Great for Newborn baby liquid poo - Contains Newborn explosions better than anything else we've tried!
  • Stretchable non-toxic material
  • One size fits all
  • Snappi offers a practical and reliable solution to fitting a cloth nappy, without using nappy pins!

How To

Instructions below, or click HERE to view a video

STRETCH the Snappi fastener before its first use. The stretching triggers the ‘memory’ of the Snappi to return to its original size, and in doing so, will pull the nappy to the middle to allow for a snug fit. It also makes it more pliable/elastic and therefore easier to use. This is essential for the Snappi to work properly.  See below for instructions on how to.

To attach hold the nappy with one hand and attach the snappi with the other. Hook the snappi to the left of the nappy then to the right and then pull tightly down in the centre to form a Y shape. Don't be afraid to put it on tight, they are very stretchy! Most importantly when attaching the snappi make sure you hold onto the tab and not the loops otherwise OUCHY!

Using a Snappi

In other words, the Snappi fastener should go from a ‘T’ shape to a ‘Y’ shape.

When attaching the Snappi, hold onto the solid part of the tab. DO NOT pull on the loops. The loops can be used as an added safety feature - secure them over the teeth of the Snappi when it is not in use - in order to cover the teeth.

Make sure that the Snappi teeth have gripped properly into the diaper fabric and that it is ATTACHED SECURELY with all 3 arms. The 3 points of tension are important as it is the third arm that will help prevent the Snappi from coming undone.

By following these instructions, the Snappi should be secure and the nappy will fit snugly. It is ESSENTIAL to use a cover over the diaper and Snappi fastener.

How to Stretch the Snappi before use

Stretch the Snappi by holding it in the center with one hand and with your other hand, grab close to the end of one of the arms, avoiding the sharp teeth, and pull. Do not grab the Snappi by the loops. Repeat this about 10 times for each arm. You will notice the material begin to soften up and become more elastic. Once you do this for each arm your Snappi Diaper Fastener is ready for use!


  • Snappi's are not toys. Keep out of children’s reach when not in use!
  • Replace your Snappi if there is any physical damage or weak spots.
  • Do NOT use a Snappi on a child who is able to undo it or remove their nappy/clothing.
  • Snappi's should only be fastened by an adult.
  • Use a nappy cover over a Snappi fastener.
  • Do not leave your Snappi in the sun for extended periods as this can eventually weaken the Snappi.


Clean your Snappi in hot soapy water. Do not launder with diapers in the washer as the grips could damage your diapers.


  • Any tear in the Snappi can lead to separation of a piece, presenting a possible choking hazard.
  • Do not cut your Snappi as this could create weak spots in your Snappi.
  • Do not pull on the loops of the Snappi when attaching, as this can cause breakage. These loops serve as a safety feature only, as explained above. Use the flat, solid tabs for leverage.
  • Inspect your Snappi before each use. Discontinue use immediately if there is any sign of cracking, tearing, breakage or wear of any parts.


THIS PRODUCT IS NOT A TOY, AND SHOULD BE KEPT OUT OF CHILDREN'S REACH WHEN NOT IN USE. Pull the ring over the teeth of the fastener to avoid eager siblings getting pricked when the fastener is handled.

      • 2-child guarantee

        All of us at Real Nappies sat around and wondered how we could convince you that Real Nappies are awesome if we don’t back them ourselves?

        So, we decided to offer you the best Guarantee in the Industry…

        We guarantee our covers and nappies for 2 babies, or we’ll replace them!

        What’s covered under the Guarantee?

        • velcro that is coming off, broken or unstitched
        • stitching coming loose
        • holes or tears in fabric
        • flaws in the manufacture
        • velcro that has physically lost its ‘teeth’ and is therefore no longer sticking (lint build up is not covered)

        What’s not covered under the Guarantee?

        • normal wear and tear
        • fading
        • staining
        • pilling
        • repelling : lack of absorption on your cotton nappies (probably due to detergent build up)
        • loss of waterproofness on your covers (probably from detergent build up, see our FAQs for tips to strip the covers)
        • loss of waterproofness due to soaking covers
        • lint build up
        • laundry tabs (these are not made of velcro)

        Easy care…

        Real Nappies are easy to look after with regular care, small amount of detergent and machine washing. We recommend the occasional hot wash to remove any detergent residue.

        You can machine or line dry but there are a few No-No’s to follow:


        • bleach
        • vinegar (NOTE: We do suggest occasionally adding 1/2 cup of vinegar to the first rinse cycle in order to remove any residual detergent when washing your cotton nappies. This deodorizes, sanitizes and brightens your cotton nappies, and will not affect your warranty. Vinegar is NOT recommended to be used on your covers.)
        • fabric softeners
        • washing powder with enzymes or other additives
        • NEVER soak your covers
        • whitening agents
        • soap flakes or borax
        • nappy creams (please use a liner to protect your nappies if you wish to use creams)

        BE CAREFUL: particularly of home made detergents, products such as Borax used on the cover will break down the PUL and the elastic.

        Terms and conditions:

        Real Nappies products are made from premium quality materials and we are proud to provide this guarantee so that you can save even more by using them not just for one child, but for your second child as well. This replacement guarantee is based on items being washed every two days, not more frequently, and covers stitching, elastic, fastenings, any manufacturing defects. It requires the use of the recommended minimum numbers of nappy covers (minimum 6 ) and cloth nappy inserts (minimum: 24 Newborn, 24 Infant, 18 Crawler, 12 Toddler) at each size. This warranty only applies to nappies and covers bought directly from our website. This warranty does not apply to nappies or covers bought second hand from Trade Me or similar. This warranty only applies to cotton prefolds manufactured by Real Nappies or Real Snug Wrap Covers manufactured by Real Nappies.

        If you do experience a failure with a Real Nappies product, please contact us at with the details. We may require the return of the item and the proof of your purchase. Returned items must be in a clean, washed and dry condition.
